The default system log rotation mechanism (newsyslog(8)) requires ability to send signal to a daemon in order to properly complete rotation of the logs in an "atomic" manner without having to making a copy and truncating original file. Unfortunately our built-in mechanism to convert "dumb" programs into daemons has no way to handle this rotation properly. This change adds this ability, to be enabled by supplying -H option in addition to the -o option.
